Jason Harrison and Rylan Pahe were sworn in on Wednesday, March 4, by honorable Tribal Judge Scott Moore. On Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015, the two graduated from the Indian Police Academy in Artesia, NM. The new officers successfully completed a grueling 16-week, semi-military style police academy. Jason Harrison previously worked at the Southern Ute Detention Center for many years as a detention officer. Rylan Pahe previously worked security at the Sky Ute Casino. The men were only two of several candidates who applied for a police trainee position. Jason Harrison was recognized on graduation day for being a squad leader. The Southern Ute Police Department is very proud of both Jason and Rylan.
